Anker, Peak Design, Pelican, Sachtler, Etc [UPDATED]

Friday is also known as FryDay, because it’s a traditional day to fry everything you eat or drink 😉 PS: the previous sentence has not been fact-checked!

Car charging fans, the Friday Meh daily deal is for you, it is a 2-pack of Anker 5-port 50W car chargers for $19 total plus shipping. That’s under $10 per charger. Now those long commutes have a utilitarian silver lining: charging everything that could be charged 🙂

Meanwhile the B&H daily deals are, as usual, good until Saturday at 11:59pm ET with the caveat that orders are not accepted Fri PM to Sat PM {check their website for exact times}:

+ open-box Peak Design Shell Form-Fitting Lens Rain and Dust Covers, two options, $20 to $25

+ Pelican ProGear 1810 LED Keychain Light for $6
+ now you can light paint no matter where you are

+ Vello hot-shoe bubble-levels, four options, $6 to $10

+ MiGGo Splat Flexible Tripod 3N1 for $18

+ AmazFit GTS smartwatches, six options, for $90 each

+ reusable masks

+ flash deal: Sachtler Shell Camera Backpack for $96~

+ no teaser for the next flash deal

UPDATE #1: the Friday Best Buy daily deals are headlined by a Razer gaming sale (including mechanical keyboards). There’s also a 1TB WD external USB-C SSD for $140, a 27″ LG IPS FHD monitor for $250 (HDR, DisplayPort), a Samsonite mobile duffe for $70, Rexing dash cams, a $5 wired keypad (could be handy for data entry on laptops without OR with USB OTG dongles on compatible smartphones/tablets), and on and on…

UPDATE #2: at the Woot daily deals they have open-box MacBooks, former-flagship refurbished scatch-n-dent Android phones starting at $60 ($60 = Galaxy S6)… A point of potential consumer confusion in the “Grocery” sub-Woot, the “matcha” they advertise is not matcha. It’s loose leaf tea with matcha sprinkled in. Matcha, by definition, is tea leaves ground to powder and you drink the whole thing. Unlike instant-coffee, (real) matcha does not dissolve (but rather suspends) in water because it’s actual pieces of tea leaf (and not chemical instant coffee that dissolves)…

UPDATE #3: the new incarnation of the Adorama daily deals (change Saturday 10am ET) includes:

+ StabiLens Cinematographer Kit for $120

+ H&A Elite Pro 15′ XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable with Rean by Neutrik Gold Connectors for $6

Tokina Opera 16-28mm f2.8 for $529 [C/N]

Prepare to sing, prepare for a Night at the Opera at the Adorama daily deals, it is the new condition Tokina Opera 16-28mm f2.8 FX zoom lens going for $529 with free US shipping in your choice of Canon or Nikon DSLR systems… Sale ends on Friday at 10am ET or earlier if sold out…

PS: this is “typo-certified” to be Tokina, not Tamron 🙂
